Hi,

I noticed that my screen has a burn-in. The notification bar is much brighter and I have now rectangles that I can see with a white or gray screen. I use my phone quite heavly per day (around 6 hrs screen on). 

Is it covered on manufacturer warranty? How long is the repair? 

I got so many phones and I never had a burn in. (previously had the Note 4)

Thanks!

Amoled screens can have this issue.

I've never tried it but I found this app that may help.

You are burning the unaffected part (status bar) to make it even. Doesn't really fix the issue, just evens the defect out...

Yup, there isn't a fix. It's a thing that can happen to Amoled panels.

Wouldn't it be covered by the warranty?

A quick google showed that everyone else had no problem getting a replacement through their respective warranties.
It's not physical damage or water damage. 
Just bring it in I would say,
